Kristen Payne

Human Resources Manager

Kristen Payne - Human Resources ManagerI joined the Hallmark Home Mortgage team with over 12 years of progressive human resources experience and a career focused on delivering high levels of employee and customer service. My expertise includes employee relations management, benefits administration, recruitment, hiring, polices and organizational development. I have held both Human Resources Generalist roles as well as Human Resources Director roles in a variety of industries. My certifications include Professional Human Resources (PHR) and most recently Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) from Society of Human Resource Management.

I was born and raised in Elkhart, IN and moved to Fort Wayne in 2002 to pursue my Bachelor’s degree in Business. I have a wonderful husband of 13 years and a very rambunctious, yet loving, five-year old son. Much of my time outside work is spent with family and friends, enjoying the outdoors, traveling, and volunteering at church. I truly enjoy serving others and continue to do so as a board member of the United Way of DeKalb County.

I am proud to be a member of the Hallmark Home Mortgage team, comprised of seasoned professionals committed to excellence. My goal is to be instrumental in fulfilling our mission of enriching the lives of our employees.
